    One thought on “The Vesuvius Club Graphic Novel (Lucifer Box,#1)”

    1. I'm always in two minds about Graphic novels - would I have enjoyed it more had I read it as text??This one I'm not so sure. It is a fun romp using Edwardian England, a wealthy rake involved in the secret service, and then a load of silliness. There are great lines, and being an adult graphic novel, there is no shortage of blood splatterings or full genitalia. The line work is fine, although my biggest complaint is the excessive use of India ink - I can have problems trying to see what is happen [...]

    2. Ah, Lucifer Box. My perfect imaginary boyfriend: a suave, debonair, mildly depraved bisexual British secret agent, with a memorable name, razor wit, an even sharper sense of humor, and a just equally sharp taste for clothes.And no, not interested in James Bond. Give me Lucifer any day of the week.I wasn't entirely fond of the original book because I read it long ago, when I was a little too young to understand it, and it confused me a lot. I gave the book away, much to my pity, but upon revisiti [...]

    3. this book wasn't even mehhh it got to a point it was already ehhhh, it looked like a mexican soap opera, i don't know if the book is any better, but i'm not interest to be honest, they had the stupidest plot twists and you're like what the hell, and by the end they tried to be steampunk, no, please just leave steampunk alone please. on the good side the art was pretty good, if you want to see pretty good art you should totally pick this up, but he story is kinda sucky, it's basically Sherlock Ho [...]

    4. Beautifully drawn and a nice supplement to the novel. But without reading the book first, the sotry makes little sense. I would have preferred that the first part had an alternative story, like it does at the end. I also was missing the action a lot, for example at the cemetery.

    5. While the story itself is not as in depth as the original book (obviously), the art does such a good job of bringing the character and the action and the settings to life. There is no colour, it is only black and white. This is a shame in some respects, because i would have loved some colour in a few particular panels (mostly the violent ones, i will confess–what’s a blood splatter without a little red?). On the other hand, the black and white provides such a noir, mystery and classy feel to [...]

    6. so .i've had this laying around for probably about five years. i read the novels back when i was really into sherlock [ugh] and then i got this off thriftbooks but never actually got around to it because it seemed stupid to read the graphic novel immediately after reading the regular novelyway fast forward to now and i'm trying to actually read some print books i've bought over the years and i am just underwhelmed. to be honest it's probably not much worse than the actual books. i remember liki [...]

    7. I loved the illustrations by Ian Bass in 'The Vesuvius Club' above and spotting its graphic novel edition among my late husband's collection I elected to also read it. The art is a tribute to the style of the Edwardian period and also shows the influence of Aubrey Beardsley especially in the erotic scenes that were rendered with a pinch of mischief.Given I read the graphic edition so soon after the novel it is hard for me to judge how it would work if encountered on its own.

    8. Graphic novels are a tricky thing. Some work & some don't. Having previously read the novel of The Vesuvius Club three times I gave the graphic novel a go & was pleasantly surprised. The story lends itself extremely well to the format & although the novel is edited considerably this version retains all the fun of the original.

    9. as the first novel by one of the 'league of gentlemen' i had very high expectations of this book, and i was not disappointed at all!! witty romp (and i really don't use that word lightly, it is very apt) through victorian london. highly recommended!

    10. Beautiful art in this Edwardian mystery where Lucifer Box is hired to get to the bottom of the case of disappearing scientists.

    11. Enjoyed the story and characters, but really some of the drawings were very amateurish, they just didn't work. I'll look out for the books rather than graphic novels in future.

    12. My high hopes for this book were dashed by mundane, ill fitting poorly rendered art and dull predictable twists.Could have been magnificent. It isn't.
